But What If We Don't?

I Corinthians 1:18-24

1 Corinthians 1:21 For after that in the wisdom of God the world by wisdom knew not God, it pleased God by the foolishness of preaching to save them that believe.

"Preaching" in the Bible is not always the act of standing behind a pulpit and hollering to a congregation. Philip "preached" as he witnessed to the Ethiopian eunuch one on one in the man's vehicle. God has no "Plan B" for reaching the lost! He has ordained that people get saved by hearing the gospel from another believer! There is no other way!

Our lifestyle does NOT save people! Our life should reflect our belief and support our witness, but it will never get people saved without someone VERBALLY presenting the gospel! We must not get sidetracked as a church from our purpose. The mission of Grace Baptist Temple can be simply stated in three words; winning, building, and sending. Our goal is to win people to Christ, build them up in the faith, and send them forth to serve the Lord.

What a blessing to send forth workers to serve whether it is in our community, or around the world! It is also wonderful to have a part in people growing in their faith. But those aspects of our purpose cannot be realized if we don't first win people to Christ! We have stated our purpose, we are aware of our responsibility, but what if we don't win others to Christ?

If We Don't Win Them ...

I. They Will Not Be Saved From Hell

II. They Will Never Know The Joy Of Salvation.

If We Don't Win Them ...

III. We Will Miss Out On God's Greatest Blessing

If We Don't Win Them ...
